Jewelry from Junk

This week I wrote a review of a recent favorite book Junk to Jewelry by Brenda Schweder. I share with Brenda a love for finding odd bits and pieces and incorporating them into jewelry. I would like to share some of my jewelry from junk.

The round portion of this brass pendant was a drawer pull in it's former life.

This ring is made up of brass washers and watch parts.

Beach combing in Massachusetts yielded this softly polished piece of white sea glass which has been wrapped in sterling silver.

Whether you call it Junk to Jewelry, Trash to Treasure or Salvaged Style making a beautiful object out of the unappreciated detritus of the world is a fabulous stretch of the imagination. The recycling will make you feel green and virtuous as well.
